Our Story

Our story starts in 2014 when our founder, Kristin Juliano, began Chop VT out of her quaint home studio in Northern Vermont with a simple idea: create a product that brings the timeless beauty of repurposed natural stone into everyday dining experiences. 


Over the last 9 years, Chop Vermont has steadily built a reputation for creating one-of-a-kind, locally-made, reclaimed granite charcuterie and cheese boards that bring character and charm to any home.

When you shop from Chop Vermont, you are supporting a small, family-owned and operated business committed to creating high-quality products that you can enjoy for years to come.

Always Sustainably Made

Our commitment to preserving the planet that gifts us this precious material is why we buy all our repurposed stones exclusively from Vermonters. Doing so allows us to lower our carbon footprint, support the community, and help our customers feel good about their purchases. 


We pride ourselves on sourcing granite that would otherwise be tossed in a landfill and reclaiming it to create a unique product that weaves together art, design, and culinary culture.


Turning Stone Into Art

Hand-crafting our boards is a true exercise in precision and would not be possible without years of honed technique and attention to detail. Unlike the big, nameless factories that churn out thousands of ‘units’ daily, we are a small, family-operated shop that chisels each board by hand in our local studio. 


Each uniquely colored board is complemented by one of our various bases, designed to suit every kitchen’s specific needs. Customers can select their base of choice from our options which include round wooden feet, a bamboo lazy susan, or high-quality felt. 


Before leaving the studio, each board is lightly sanded and sealed to ensure a nonporous surface that does not stain or absorb liquids, making clean-up following each use as easy as can be. 


The final touches include a hand-tied ribbon, one cheese knife, and detailed care instructions.
